Mark's book is a blast to read. Written in the "tall tale" tradition, these runner's stories read like Patrick McManus shorts. Some are simply amusing, while others are quite hilarious. All-in-all, a fun read, especially for the athlete (or the rest of us - our inner-athlete!).

This book is for runners enjoyment, but also for others who love to laugh! it was so hillarious! This guy can think of everything in this daily living & needs and so on is in this book and turned into so many types of jokes and stuff you'll tear up with laughter. A must read book. I started it on oct 13 and just finished oct- 2013.
He uses so many funny words and speech. Something different than the usual paranormal,sci-fi and YA books, but a change once in a while is worth it. Maybe you are
